    Hello @zm.Zoran.Vucetic ,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Microsoft Q&A platform. Happy to answer your question.

    I understand you are unable to create folders on the C:\ Drive of an AVD. This could be because of the below listed reasons.

    1. Standard users don't have the permissions to create Folders on c:\ directly. This is not specific to AVD, but a Windows default security configuration.
      Just check the NTFS permissions on the C drive to see if that is the case.
    2. If your AVD pool is a pooled pool (not personal) it seems normal user will not be able to create or store data directly in C:\ but only in his own profile (sync with fslogix), in fact the user can be logged into any machine in the pool.
    3. It is technically possible but based on NTFS permissions. If the customer wants for the AVD clients to put their data in their own profile, FSLogix integrated with Azure Storage is the recommended option to become roaming, because in a pooled scenario, the AVD client can connect from different AVD Session hosts. So, in order to reach the previous user profile data from any session host, FSLogix is the correct method. If the customer needs a static folder for some applications or general data, the recommended way is to add additional Data Disks to session hosts and set correct NTFS and share permission on the folder or file level. If this is not clear for you, could you provide much more details to help your case?
